• Jim Johnston Reveals Interesting Story About How He Came Up With Vince McMahon’s Theme Song
WWE CEO Vince McMahon always arrives on the stage with his “No Chance In Hell” theme song, which was composed by Jim Johnston.
Johnston recently spoke to Vice, where he revealed that he came up with that theme when he was upset with McMahon.
Here’s what Jim said:
“When I was writing Vince’s ‘No Chance In Hell’ entrance theme, I had been really upset with him about something at work. I found myself thinking, ‘You’ve got no chance against this guy!’ He’s got the power, the money, and in terms of pro-wrestling, he was pretty much the only game in town.
I had written the guitar groove much earlier, and I found myself singing ‘No Chance…No Chance’ over that groove. Rather than a song about one man, I wanted it to be about ‘The Man’.
The song is about the work system that imprisons us all. It’s got a thrust of someone who’s kind of like marching like they’re the kind of ‘big I am’.
What I loved about Vince was how he liked to be surprised. He let me take risks and if I surprised him with something and it was good then he would be delighted. But if it wasn’t good then boy he would tell you about it!”
